I play golf all over Illinois, but have never played at this course until now. What a gem. Lots of hazards but placed well so that you can avoid them. This course is beautiful and well kept.

The only complaint I have is there were geese all over the course.

I get to play aldeen about every 2-3 years for the past 20 years. Always a pleasure to go there, but this day proved to me that the park district has cut their budget for sure. The large putting green which is ALWAYS in perfect condition every time I go there, was badly burnt out in some big spots. The greens on the course rolled at about 8.0 and the rough had bare patches and weeds that you never did see in previous years. This has been the easiest WINTER, SPRING, and SUMMER with cool and wet weather and ALL golf courses are in excellent condition, BUT NOT ALDEEN. If you were told to expect conditions for an average municipal public course, then your expectations would be met, however Aldeen has commanded respect and proven to host many tournaments and always be in good or very good condition... NOT TODAY BUDDY BOY.... Moderate disappointment mainly on the greens, but like mentioned, overall conditioning 1-2 notches off of what it has been historically. Great layout and fun course, but the average conditions tee-to-green, and slightly below average green conditions made this a disappointing 1 hour drive for sure.

We understand your concerns with course conditions, especially when they were not up to par during a normal round with us (and a 1-hour drive to the course). Our staff appreciated your comments and will take this into consideration as we move into Autumn. We hope to see you at the course again. Thank you for golfing with us!

If you are a golf enthusiast who does not mind a challenge, DO NOT miss the opportunity to play this course. It is as good a track as I have played in recent years. Tough, but fair. It was an absolute delight to play just because of the surroundings. More of a small country club feel than a public golf course.

An added feature was the clubhouse. Decent pro shop and a wonderful restaurant.

If you are in the Rockford area get there!

In the Rockford area, you will not find a better public course with this quality. The consistency of the greens, the manicured fairways, and the solid challenge of every hole, keeps me coming back. Hit'em straight!! That's the key on this beautiful course.
